Italy’s Piedmont region is a gastronome’s
paradise. Even its less-famous wines are
uniformly food-friendly and delicious.

Ferraris family: Luca Ferraris’s great-grandmother purchased the
vineyards for this Asti estate after her husband, who’d emigrated
to America, made a small fortune in the Gold Rush. More than a

Randall Grahm to sell his wines made from Ruch, a rare
Piedmont red grape, in the US. This red shows Ferraris’s talent with

Piedmont table. It comes from the prestigious superiore zone in
Asti, a top spot for the grape.
